The rich scent of roasting coffee beans, welcoming atmosphere and friendly fellowship greeted officials with the Shippensburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Shippensburg Township Monday as they celebrated the opening of the Walnut Bottom Road Starbucks.

Store Manager Brandi Mixell and District Manager Jenna Robinson welcomed township supervisors Steve Oldt and Marc Rideout; chamber representatives Scott Brown, Wendy Forrester, Vicky Simmel and Melinda Thompson; and Karen Martin, regional property manager with Pomegranate Real Estate, on a dreary, rainy afternoon -- the perfect day to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a croissant or pastry.
